MS-ETM

The Master of Science in Engineering and Technology Management (MS-ETM) is an applied graduate program focused on preparing engineering and technical professionals to become leaders in the management of technology in their fields.

Participants learn decision making, evaluation, and implementation strategies for fast moving, technical management decisions that prepare them for both career and business success.

Graduate students in the MS-ETM program complete a graduate project rather than a theoretical or research-based thesis often associated with a Master of Science. While theory and research are always a part of a graduate degree, UVU’s MS-ETM program focuses on real world applications ahead of theory.
